Jason keeps asking for a dog, and since I plan on raising children and not puppies, I don't really see it happening in the near future. To ease the pain, for Jason's birthday, I got him a chia puppy! He's quiet, never barks or yaps, he can be an inside or outside dog, doesn't make messes, and still you can love him and watch him grow! Good thing you can keep reusing these chias, because our first attempt wasn't perfect. I guess we packed on the seeds too heavy on his back; the sprouts have been having a hard time growing there. He looks like he's experiencing a little male pattern baldness.
